Ink Pads + Cat = Easy decorated guest Towels

This is a quick little ditty for Kristina's color challenge. I used the adorable set we got at regionals - Best Wishes and More.

I stamped the flowers in Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point Blue, Taken With Teal, and Pumpkin Pie. (Sorry my colors are washed out in this photo - I hate the time change - there's not enough daylight for photography after work!) I punched the centers of the pumpkin ones and mounted them with dimensionals. I thought the white space really showed off these vivid colors.

The center panel is popped up too.

Great question on the tree Ink Pattie!! I want to try that!

Splotchy takes "Handmade" to a whole new level in this week's tutorial. She likes to teach frugal decorating tips in this uncertain economy. She is such a good jumper I didn't even know what was happening until it was over and she was sitting on my Riding Hood Red ink pad during the creation of my reindeer card. I ran into the bathroom with her and had her stand on a guest towel while I warmed up the foot bath of shame. When I was done I had to snap a pic her little paw art!! Only then did I understand her crafty and generous nature!

Maddie, who doesnt have a crafty bone in her body, just pouted while Splotchy hogged the spotlight.

It's almost Friday! :)

  2. Lydia,

    Cute card, cheerful and relatively quick to make. Would be a great stamp a stack workshop card. I sure do wish that I had your eyes and hands with a camera. You always manage to capture those kitties in the most hilarious positions and facial expressions. I so look forward to seeing them on your blog.

    Well, concerning that GORGEOUS man on my blog (don't tell my dear boyfriend I said that, right?), he is a representative for Quickutz, visiting Sweden in a week... Hehe, I do wonder why HE got the job?? Because he's such a quickutz enthusiast? Yeah right! *LOL*

    Take care, you sweet girl!

  10. This is how shall I say.... A product that I would most definitely love to have around the house, I mean it is beneficial.. Am I right or Am I Right?! Whether some may agree or not, it doesn't bug me to enjoy the company of one of these :)
    If everybody has them, I think I should have the opportunity in luxuriating myself with the presence of making this my present! Gotta say, its mainly because how well you've explained everything
    It's a great gift except for sometimes, but hey it surely does re-coupe and make up for boring and lost times..
